Super simple. I’m always amazed at how popular these boards are. I make them in all types of wood. These are walnut. Just one board about a foot wide, chop it up and glue it back together. Some of my best sellers. The ones I made of purpleheart looked incredible. Added angled sides to a few to change it up a bit.

Nice looking board. Nothing wrong with simple. Humans notoriously like to over complicate things.

I’m amazed at what some of the LJ’s can come up with for cutting boards. Some are mind boggling.
But I always find that simple is usually the best way to go. Not every customer likes mind boggling.
These are really really nice!

Very very nice! One question: what is the recommended type of glue to use in cutting boards?

Very nice work. I really like the last one the best. Just sawn and re-glued gets you a great look.

Sergiozal – I have always heard to stick with titebond2 or 3. I usually use TB3 for the extra protection against the water

Wow excellent end grain board, great way to turn 3/4” stock (little too thin for a cutting board) into something thicker.

Very cool effect with the grain. These are some of the classiest cutting boards I’ve seen. Thanks for sharing.

I really like the look and the grain pattern is amazing. In the first pick is it a hand hold cut out of the bottom or is the whole thing undercut ?

It’s just a hand hold cut about a inch and a half back.
